COVID-19 has put small businesses under an enormous amount of pressure, so a campaign designed to highlight struggling businesses to get YOUR attention is getting heaps of support.
Visa’s #WhereYouShopMatters wants people to THINK about shopping locally. They’ve gathered local businesses that need support and listed them here. The Small Business Directory lists everything from restaurants and retail to online services and today, we’re taking a closer look at WANDER POT, a locally owned sustainable plant business.
WANDER POT spreads joy with sustainable gifts of happiness! They aim to inspire a sustainable lifestyle through green experiences and offer sustainable plant gifts, plant styling and plant rental services.
All of WANDER POT products are designed from recycled and/or biodegradable materials making it the first sustainable plant business in the UAE, watch their story here:
